These options mean something to all cache implementations. Individual cache implementations may support additional options.

lookup_store(*store_option)

Creates a new CacheStore object according to the given options.

If no arguments are passed to this method, then a new ActiveSupport::Cache::MemoryStore object will be returned.

If you pass a Symbol as the first argument, then a corresponding cache store class under the ActiveSupport::Cache namespace will be created. For example:

ActiveSupport::Cache.lookup_store(:memory_store)
# => returns a new ActiveSupport::Cache::MemoryStore object

ActiveSupport::Cache.lookup_store(:mem_cache_store)
# => returns a new ActiveSupport::Cache::MemCacheStore object

Any additional arguments will be passed to the corresponding cache store class's constructor:

ActiveSupport::Cache.lookup_store(:file_store, "/tmp/cache")
# => same as: ActiveSupport::Cache::FileStore.new("/tmp/cache")

If the first argument is not a Symbol, then it will simply be returned:

ActiveSupport::Cache.lookup_store(MyOwnCacheStore.new)
# => returns MyOwnCacheStore.new
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/cache.rb, line 55
